More comments about Eminem

Drake is a lyrical genius, his metaphors are constantly stuck in my head.

3Kendrick Lamar
It's early in the year to tell who's the best. But if this year is anything like last year, Kendrick will more than likely be making some of the larger impacts on hip-hop. This list shouldn't involve people like Eminem or Nas. They've already been through the ring and proven their skills and will forever be known as some of the best to ever do it. Eminem & Nas don't have to make any more impact on Hip-Hop because they've already made their impact.
He will dominate this year especially after not winning a Grammy that should set him off even more
Kendrick is dope as hell and a great lyricst. I'm really glad Drake isn't on this list.

6J. Cole
Cole is a fantastic rapper and producer
I love j Coles music

7Kanye West
Kanye should be in the top 3 his music is way better than 2 chains and lil Wayne because unlike them his music makes sense and doesn't repeat itself with the same 1 word the whole time his music also has meaning unlike 2 chains and lil Wayne who rap about nothing
Not after what he did to taylor swift


MGK is a newcommer but hands down will one day be as great as Eminem.
MGK is better than Eminem
I tink he is a good rapper but he needs to put in a lot of work to become the best. THe best song I've heard from him was wildboy

Macklemore is one of the best and most inspirational rappers I have heard.

Way better than MGK... Him and Bronson are the best white rappers right now
One of them should be lower

The best rapper of my whole life!
Most trillest rapper in the 21 century

30Rick Ross
I don't really like Deadmau5 that much, but will go to their show anyway to see Rick as the opener.
Next year's world tour with him being the opening act for Deadmau5 should really help increase his popularity.
